Shipping goods from Philippines to Australia

Hey guys, my fiancÚ and I are in the final stages of waiting for our PMV. What is the best way to get his belongings to aus? Airlines only offer about 30kgs, that's not enough for moving though. Has anyone had any experience in this matter? He's in Manila I'm
In Melbourne. It's all just clothes and things no furniture or anything big. Looked up fed ex but for 20kg they quoted me over $300! HELPPPPP!!

Hi danielle_ramon, you may try DHL, it was the least expensive option we've found. If I'm not mistaken, their Jumbo box (25 kg) cost around Php 6,000.

i heard that first time travel migrants can have additional luggage allowance. Call your airline to find out. I think QANTAS and maybe Singapore Airlines have it.

yes you're correct. i just asked them earlier, their 25kgs box cost less than 7,000pesos...

may i just ask, is it really okay with DHL, shipping my old clothes, shoes and bags? no hassle from the customs?

Hi Danielle
In the Philippine fiancée visa thread a few months ago someone gave the name of a company (maybe gov't run) to book airline tickets through which allowed a massive free baggage allowance for first time immigrants. Maybe ABC can remember this

Is this place in Davao as well, as it might work out cheaper sending baggage via this company and then travelling on air asia (low cost carrier)
